Back the Bid for Plymouth UK City of Culture 2017
Plymouth is aiming for the prestigious UK City of Culture 2017 title, and is preparing to submit a provisional bid by April 30.
Victory could mean bringing glitzy events such as the Brit Awards, Turner Prize and BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards to the city as well as creating a dazzling calendar of other activities.
And the tourism boost could see millions of pounds pumped into the local economy.
Herald editor Ian Wood said: "Plymouth's bid to become the UK City of Culture in 2017 represents ambition and it is through ambition that this city will create a prosperous future.

Yes, this bid is about staging a fantastic year of creative excellence for the people of Plymouth and showcasing this great city to the rest of the country. But it is just as much about generating economic activity and jobs. You only have to look at those cities which have had the vision to pitch for similar events in the past – Liverpool, Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Bristol and, of course, this year's City of Culture, Derry/Londonderry – to see the huge benefits they gained whether they succeeded or not.
City of Culture provides an opportunity for people from all walks of life in Plymouth to come together with a common purpose."
